The 2018 SNA election nominations process is open! SNA needs members with strong leadership skills, outstanding professional achievements and a record of active participation in their state association and at SNA to lead the association in the future. The following positions are now open so hurry and get your name in or nominate a SNA colleague!

*In 2015, the Delegate Assembly approved bylaw amendments which included the elimination of the Vice President position. This was done to reduce the challenging three-year time commitment on the leadership path to President. The President-elect’s term is one year, followed by a one year term as President. Due to the bylaw eligibility requirements for this position, only a limited number of members are eligible. They will be individually invited to submit their intent to run for the office.

Nomination Process
Please consider the leadership talent you see and work with in your state, your region or at the national level, and submit a nomination for one or more of the open positions or, submit your own name for nomination! The Call for Nominations and Recommendation form is on the SNA website at This new page shows you everything you need to know if you are considering a national leadership opportunity! Nominations are due Friday, September 29, 2017.

The Leadership Development Committee, chaired by SNA Past President Julia Bauscher, will meet at Committee Days in October to select the candidate slate for the 2018 election. The selected candidates will be announced following Committee Days. The election is February 15-28, 2018.
